Overview of Terahertz Radiation Sources

  title={Overview of Terahertz Radiation Sources},
  author={G. P. Gallerano},
Although terahertz (THz) radiation was first observed about hundred years ago, the corresponding portion of the electromagnetic spectrum has been for long time considered a rather poorly explored region at the boundary between the microwaves and the infrared. This situation has changed during the past ten years with the rapid development of coherent THz sources, such as solid state oscillators, quantum cascade lasers, optically pumped solid state devices and novel free electron devices, which… CONTINUE READING
